Is your turbine performing to its maximum efficiency and top thermal performance? MD&A offers thermodynamic analyses, performance testing, and steam path audits for all makes, models, and types of steam and gas turbines.
MD&A’s themodynamic analyses account for every BTU of energy and show how fuel costs can be reduced. A steam path audit can be performed during overhaul without impacting the outage schedule and inspects every seal, blade, and nozzle to determine losses on a stage-by-stage basis. Our thermal performance testing per ASME test codes offers accurate heat balance information and performance guarantee assurances. The benefits of conducting thermal performance analysis are as follows:
- Identify causes of lost capacity
- Locate sources of heat rate deterioration
- Decrease fuel costs
- Reduce emissions
- Invest maintenance funds with the highest return
- Return performance to like-new conditions
- Stay on outage schedule
- Allocate thin repair budget more efficiently
